The Afghan

'Forsyth on top form...the master storyteller has lost none of his touch' Daily Mail When British and American intelligence catch wind of a major Al Qaeda operation in the works, they are primed for action - but what can they do? They know nothing about the attack: the what, where or when. They have no sources in Al Qaeda, and it's impossible to plant someone. Impossible, unless . . . The Afghan is Izmat Khan, a five-year prisoner of Guantanamo Bay and a former senior commander of the Taliban. The Afghan is also Colonel Mike Martin, a 25-year veteran of war zones around the world, a dark, lean man born and raised in Iraq. In an attempt to stave off disaster, the intelligence agencies will try to do what no one has ever done before - pass off a Westerner as an Arab among Arabs - pass off Martin as the trusted Khan. It will require extraordinary preparation, and then extraordinary luck, for nothing can truly prepare Martin for the dark and shifting world he is about to enter. Or for the terrible things he will find there . . . The Day of the Jackal, The Dogs of War, The Odessa File - the books of Frederick Forsyth have helped define the international thriller as we know it today. Combining meticulous research with crisp narratives and plots as current as the headlines, Forsyth shows us the world as it is, in a way that few have ever been able to equal. And the world as it is today is a very scary place . . .

'The Lemur has pace and bravado; the writing is sharp and the timing flawless while the prose, naturally, is brilliant' Time Out William 'Big Bill' Mulholland is an Irish-American electronics billionaire. An ex-CIA operative, he now heads up the Mulholland Trust, with the help of his daughter Louise. When Mulholland gets wind of a hostile biography planned by journalist Wilson Cleaver, he commissions his daughter's husband, John Glass, to pen the official line. But neither he nor Glass had reckoned on the sinister services of 'the Lemur'. It turns out that silence cannot be bought - even by one of New York's wealthiest dynasties . . . 'The Lemur lives up to expectations. The writing is lighter and sleeker than his literary fiction but without any loss of his ability to perfectly describe situations and sensations. Engrossing reading' Irish Mail on Sunday 'The Lemur displays an emotional poignancy that is present in both of Black's previous works' Independent on Sunday 'What stands out is Black's portrayal of contemporary New York, its towers of steel and glass providing a glossy background for a tale in which no one is trusted. It's an edgy read, worthy of Don DeLillo' Evening Standard
